Jon Jarrett has been signal-boosting the ANZAMEMS CFP, which reminds me: I’m going! In spectacularly last-minute style, I’ve secured a spot in an Arthurian panel, where I will be giving a paper with the entertaining title ‘Submission to whom: love and consent in Cligés‘. I’m all about the entertaining titles, and also about meaningful analytical content. That’s right.
Many other exciting people are likely to be there! And I hear New Zealand is nice in February. You, miscellaneous denizens of the blogosphere, should definitely come.
In other news, I am still in Marking Purgatory! But I’m really, really enjoying teaching, so that’s the price one pays.
The only really interesting thing in my existence right now is that I’ve had a short story published in Semamphore Magazine, a NZ-based magazine of speculative fiction. It’s entitled ‘The Same River Twice’. I’m pretty thrilled to be in the company of Shweta Narayan, whose work I’ve been following for a while, and several other excellent authors of whom I had not heard until now.
